Once we hit our 20’s our skin cells take 28 days to turnover and the older we get, the slower this process becomes. By our 50’s - 60’s, it could even be an 8 week process! The faster the cells turnover, the more youthful we look so we want to make sure we’re using products that speed up the cell regeneration process and boost our collagen and elastin production!
Our advice? Get into a good skincare routine in your 20’s to prevent ageing later in life.
What visual changes do we see on ageing skin?

Lets talk COLLAGEN!
Think of collagen like the stuffing in your mattress. It gives your mattress structure. When you first purchase your new mattress it’s firm right? As years pass by, your mattress begins to loose its structure. It’s less firm and the layer between the mattress and the stuffing begins to wear and tear; you may even be able to feel a few springs digging into your back. As the skin ages, the overall production of collagen production slows right down. A woman in her 50’s produces 40% less collagen than she did in her twenties. We know, so unfair right!
Lets talk ELASTIN!
Think of elastin like an elastic band. It’s stretching ability is phenomenal and it’s able to bounce back to its original size like a champ. However over time it looses its durability and that once tight elastic band is loose. So loose it hardly even bounces back and one day may even snap. Elastin is a bit tougher than collagen, so we loose our elastin at a slower rate. The problem is our skin isn’t very good at making new elastin. C’mon skin, pick up your game!
